The drainage system here is not the most efficient so when there is a heavy rain fall, the streets flood very easily.
Last night, Kurt, Kirsten and I were driving near a local mall during a very heavy downpour. As we slowly drove through the rain-flooded streets, the water was about 1 1/2 - 2 feet up the side of our car. Thankfully it didn't get into the car engine! We didn't stall!
The streets here flood easily. We are thankful our house is on top of a hill!!!
